The story of the actor Jack Burns. His mother, Alice, is a Toronto tattoo artist. When Jack is four, he travels with Alice to several North Sea ports; they are trying to find Jack's missing father, William, a church organist who is addicted to being tattooed. But Alice is a mystery, and William can't be found. Even Jack's memories are subject to doubt. Jack Burns goes to schools in Canada and New England, but what shapes him are his relationships with older women. John Irving renders Jack's life as an actor in Hollywood with the same richness of detail and range of emotions he uses to describe the tattoo parlors in those North Sea ports and the reverberating music Jack heard as a child in European churches.… (mer)

Its not a bad book but John Irving has done much of the same stuff in other better books. If you want to read an Irving novel don't start here.

It is the story of Jack Burns life from childhood to early middle age. The book is divided into five sections and some are more interesting than others. The first part in the Northern European countries probably the most interesting as Jack and his mother go looking for his father. The next section about Jack's school days in New England are kinda creepy because of the sexual abuse the suffers at a young age. His first abuser a girl named Emma who is over 5 years older than he is becomes his best friend over time and it is their exploits in the movie business that takes up the next part of the book. Once Emma and Jack's mother are off stage and Jack works with a therapist to understand his childhood and the real story of his parents relationship the story wanes. New characters pop up and disappear and in the end I didn't really care what happened I just wanted the story to end. ( )

Loved this book. It could have been a tad shorter but I still loved the density and unbelievable amount of detail. I also really adored how this book ended and wanted to give Jack Burns a big hug for finally loving himself and being comfortable with what his family and his childhood. Excellent book!!! ( )

This is a great book. First the author spends hundreds of pages telling a tale from one perspective. Then he retells the tale from another perspective but everything you thought you knew had gone on was not the way it "happened". And then in the last pages we get yet another perspective. Yes it's more than 800 pages but it's difficult to put down. You want to find out what will happen next. The main character is a Johnny Depp like movie star. All the women want him but he's illusive and sees himself as damaged goods. Often stretches credulity, but you want to believe. Interestingly mixes in movies and stars that we readily recognize. They help place the story in a time and context. Definitely worth the read. ( )

Jede Hauptfigur in Bis ich dich finde ist für das Leben gezeichnet - nicht nur William Burns, ein Kirchenorganist, der süchtig danach ist, sich tätowieren zu lassen, sondern auch Williams Lied Jack, ein Schauspieler, der als Kind durch seine Beziehungen zu älteren Frauen geprägt wird. Und Jacks Mutter Alice, eine Tätowierkünstlerin aus Toronto, ist durch Williams Ablehnung dauerhaft geschädigt worden. Dies ist ein Roman über den Verlust der Unschuld, und zwar auf vielen Ebenen.

One of the problems with this novel is that Mr. Irving never finds a persuasive voice for narrating these events. The repeated acts of sexual abuse committed upon the prepubescent Jack play neither as awful, realistic acts of abuse nor as metaphorical, Grand Guignol encounters. As a result, the whole book is suffused with a smarmy but cartoonish aura: the reader is unable to sympathize with Jack as a poor abused child or to regard his experiences as some sort of farcical parable about the wicked ways of the world.

What we, or at any rate what I, refer to confidently as memory -- meaning a moment, a scene, a fact that has been subjected to a fixative and thereby rescued from oblivion -- is really a form of storytelling that goes on continually in the mind and often changes with the telling. Too many conflicting emotional interests are involved for life ever to be wholly acceptable, and possibly it is the work of the storyteller to rearrange things so that they conform to this end. In any case, in talking about the past we lie with every breath we draw.

For my youngest son, Everett,

who made me feel young again.

With my fervent hope that when you're

old enough to read this story, you will

have had (or still be in the midst of)

an ideal childhood -- as different from

the one described here as anyone

could imagine.

According to his mother, Jack Burns was an actor before he was an actor, but Jack's most vivid memories of childhood were those moments when he felt compelled to hold his mother's hand.
